    Charging my traxxas batteries

    Can i use a parallel connector on my batteries to charge them both at once? Just set the charger at 6 amps since both batteries are 3000mah? Any thoughts?

    I'm a newbe to all this but everything I've read says that not a good idea. But hopefully a 'veteran' will chime in.

    NO NO NO!!!
    never parallel charge a nimh battery on some other forum this guy started a thread after he had parallel charged 2 7 cell nimh packs overnight well the pics weren't pretty one of the batteries had basically grenaded and had left acid everywhere. that is because with parallel charging something you can't balance such as nimh all the current goes into the battery with the least resistance so you end up with one seriously overcharged pack that's probably spilt acid everywhere and an empty one
